Is there anywhere I can get Vanilla Coke?

Asked by XOIIO (16868 points ) March 15th, 2011

Vanilla coke was like a big “O” in a can, is there anywhere that I can order it online, or has it been permanently discontinued?

Why did they stop making it anyways?

You can add vanilla extract or “vanilla syrup” to a coke. In olden days, one could get a coke at the soda fountain. The syrup came out of a pump, then carbonated water was added and ofter a flavor, such as cherry or chocolate.

It is easy to make versions of these in your kitchen, using coke over ice as a foundation.

Sorry: Here’s the link for a high-quality vanilla syrup.

If you use vanilla extract, make sure it is pure vanilla and not fake stuff.

@SeaTurtle nope.

You are lucky. In Canada all the good stuff is only around for a while.

Vanilla extract works great. I use it all the time.

@XOIIO The real extract works well, the artificial stuff isn’t worth buying in my opinion.

@XOIIO To make a good Vanilla Coke, use the Starbucks syrup. One pump for every 6–8 ounces should be perfectly to your liking.

@gailcalled The 7-Elevens in my area still mix carbonated water with syrup (which is why it’s different – some are constantly running low on the syrup), and then you can add lime, lemon, cherry, or vanilla syrup.

The syrup they use to flavor lattes can also be mixed into sodas. The brands I usually see around are Torani or Monin. Starbucks sometimes sells them and many coffeeshops sell them. I also saw Torani syrup on the shelf at World Market. You can also make Italian sodas by mixing these in with plain carbonated water.

Vanilla coke is everywhere in Australia. Don’t you have it where you are anymore?

I think it is disgusting, but obviously lots of others must like it!

I live in NC and vanilla Coke is all my husband drinks. It’s available almost everywhere here! (I think.) Anyway have you tried the coke website?

Call Coke and find out.

I don’t have a problem finding it in local stores. Maybe you could look at online retailers like Amazon.
